Popular Kannywood actor, Ali Nuhu, has revealed that he met his wife on set as he talked about his big break into the English movie industry.
Ali Nuhu made this known during a recent interview with Daily Trust, where he disclosed that he met his wife, Maimuna, on the set of the now-classic Hausa movie, ‘Wasila’. He said;
“I was working on set, in the year 2000 when I saw her walk into the house we were shooting in, and I jokingly said to my colleagues Ishaq Sidi Ishaq and Hajara Usman, that I have seen my wife-to-be. One thing led to another, and we got talking. We had an understanding, and two days later I asked the producer of the movie, Yakubu Lere, who is her relative, that I would like to meet her again. He arranged a meeting, and we clicked immediately.”
The popular Northern actor further disclosed that his wife has been his major support system in the movie industry. He said;
“She understands the profession I am into very well, and that helps her relate with what she sees me do onscreen. She has financed 3 Hausa movies, namely ‘Madubin Dubawa’, ‘Son Mai So’ and ‘Janjani’,”
“With my busy schedules, I’m always out of town. But I make out time to be with my family, and take care of all my responsibilities as a husband and father,” Nuhu said, adding: “Sometimes we go on family vacations, to spend quality time with each other, simply to make up for the time I am away at work.”
